Another Tuesday has rolled around way too fast! Where is this year going?
1 - I bought myself a basil plant at the start of last week. I have always wanted a herb/vege garden but I suck at gardening. So far so good with this little plant. After a week he is still alive. Yay me!
2 - The first recipe made with my new basil plant was this zucchini lasagne that I have been wanting to try for ages. It was delicious! Even Corey liked it and he isn't a fan of anything carb free. Winning!
3 - Corey ran out of mayo this week but instead of buying some he asked me if I could make me some. Total proud wife moment right there. Of course I obliged and he is loving his homemade mayo. Another kitchen win!
4 - Another work colleague asked me to make them a rainbow cake this past weekend. I can't help but smile when making this cake. Even if I have to repeat "Roy G Biv" repeatedly to make sure I don't mess up the order of the colours.
5 - Cake is my major weakness in my quest to cut down on carbs & sugar. This week I tested out this canellini bean brownie recipe and it was the perfect solution to my craving. They don't taste exactly like brownies but they are pretty good.
6 - I completed the first row of hearts on my latest knitting project. I was a bit worried that they weren't looking like hearts so I went to twitter and instagram for advice. Luckily everyone else saw hearts! I think I was just looking at them for way too long and my eyes were playing tricks on me.
7 & 8 - We had the chance to get out and enjoy the sunshine a few times last week. The week prior was rainy and miserable so these days sitting in the sun did wonders for everyones moods.
9 - Isn't that the happiest pile of fabric you've ever seen?! I have pulled out a bunch of fabric scraps to make myself a new picnic blanket. I have been meaning to do this for quite some time. After tidying my sewing room I realised how out of control my scraps are getting. So now a few have been cleared and hopefully I will have a new quilt to share shortly.
So how has your week been? I hope there have been some happy moments for you all! And don't forget if you are on instagram follow me @petticoatsandpeplums!
